A man was arrested around closing time on March 16 after allegedly punching a Molly Magees employee in the face in the public parking lot behind the pub, police said.
The assailant was part of a group of about 20 people loitering in the parking lot at 230 Hope St., according to Liz Wylie, a spokeswoman with the Mountain View police. The group was acting belligerent and rowdy just after 1 a.m., so several employees from the bar asked the group to leave. That's when the man struck, according to police.
Though the victim in the assault declined medical attention and did not wish to press charges, the man accused of the assault, Francisco Alas, was arrested on charges of public intoxication and possession of marijuana, Wylie said.
Alas told police he had no permanent residence.
